JSI Tip 1840. When you start IE, a command prompt opens?

The subject behavior is the result of a failed ICW (Internet Connection Wizard) install.

To fix the problem, use Regedt32 to navigate to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components

Select the Installed Components key and delete it.

Reinstall IE.
